“Average cottage”
Reviewed 12 September 2018 for a stay in April 2018

The location is perfect for exploring the Glencoe area. Pub, supermarket and other local facilities in walking distance. Great views and hill walks can be started right from the doorstep. The house itself is large with a garden but parts of the interior are a bit dated especially the yellowed bathroom floors would need an update and were not really inviting for a shower. Some minor details such as as broken paper towel holder or worn cutlery and kitchen equipment are not what you expect from a holiday home. Cleanliness was ok. The owners were friendly and helpful and close by for any requests, although I would prefer to be welcomed with a „How are you?“ rather than with a „How would you like to pay?“.

Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. Regarding some of the minor negatives you found, we are aware one bathroom floor has discoloured very slightly, and it will be replaced at the first opportunity. The cutlery was purchased in March, one month before your arrival, and the kitchen equipment is replaces regularly as required. We're not sure what you expect from a holiday home, but I don't think there's many places that provide everything brand new for every guest. Ads for your comment on how you were greeted we're at a loss. Every guest is welcomed warmly and shown all the facilities available in the guest house first, and only at that point is payment asked for. Payment is due on arrival and we're not sure how else we could ask for it. We work very hard every day in the guest house, and on cottage changeover days, to ensure both are spotlessly clean and all our guests are comfortable. We also invest heavily in making sure the cottage is well-equipped with absolutely everything a guest requires. Indeed, on the rare occasion a guest has asked for something that we had not previously thought of, we get it and provide it. Yes, the interior is a little dated, but it it is exactly as presented in the photos, and it is reflected in the price, which all our guests find very reasonable.

“Home from home holiday base”
Reviewed 24 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We've been coming to the area since 1991 but never stayed in Ballachulish before. Hubby saw the cottage and thought it a perfect base to explore for us , our 19 year old daughter and small dog.

The cottage itself is in a superb base. There's a well stocked Coop minutes away, a pub across the road, restaurant and chippy too. There's also a great eaterie situated within the tourist info centre , also a few moments way.

There's gorgeous views from the cottage too.The cottage itself is a perfect, home from home base. Bright sitting room with plenty of space, a well stocked breakfasting kitchen with every conceivable thing you would need to prepare meals ( this was my week off as chief cook so we dined out!).We had a spacious double bedroom with loads of storage plus an en suite. Our 19 year old had a twin room with the bonus of an en suite too - a luxury for a teenager and it kept her happy.

One bonus of this cottage is the owners were close to hand as they ran the b and b next door. We've never had that booking self catering before and it was definitely a bonus.

We received a warm welcome and were shown round the cottage and given pointers where to dine etc. The welcoming provisions were greatly appreciated too - a truly thoughtful touch.We celebrated my 50th birthday whilst up there and , hand on heart, it was perfect.

If you're looking for a really good base, not too busy, not too isolated that provides a real home from home, this place is the ticket. Just trying to see with Paul when we can go back.

Thanks again,

Carol, Paul and Elise

We warmly recommend Neil's house: cosy, clean, well situated to discover the stunning views all around Glencoe. Neil was very concerned about our well-being, we are thankful about this.

“A great base for anyone visiting the Scottish Highlands”
Reviewed 2 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Perfect for a family or friends. A warm welcome and great facilities.
Everything you need is in the village. Peace and quiet if you want it.
We enjoyed the walks both locally and further a field.
